Crash Champions Founder and CEO Matt Ebert has been chosen as emcee for the 2023 MSO Symposium, according to a press release.

The 12th annual symposium will be taking place on October 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Mirage Convention Center.

The event will provide insight for small, medium, and large MSOs and growing independent repair facilities on what is influencing their businesses. Topics such as private equity, the economy, consolidation trends, expanding streams of income, and the industry’s future will be discussed throughout the symposium.

Ebert first founded Crash Champions in 1999 as a single repair center in New Lenox, Illinois. It has since expanded into both the third-largest MSO and the largest founder-led MSO in the U.S. with over 600 locations across 36 states. 

The MSO Symposium’s Advisory Board saw the addition of Ebert in 2022 and he was shortly thereafter named 2022 MSO Executive of the Year. More recently he won the Midwest Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Those who qualify to attend the event may register here. Criteria include being an owner or executive of any size MSO, an employee of an independent collision repair facility operating with over $3 million in annual sales, or a representative of a vehicle manufacturer (OEM) or insurance company.
